I’m overwhelmed with the kindness and support shown to me and thank you to everyone for your lovely words, kind suggestions and helpful advice.
I really appreciate everything that’s been said, especially after reading the Plan I was directed to by TheAwfulToad, it’s me in a nutshell!
I have been a vegetarian for my whole life, even before I understood the concept of eating food I would refuse meat/fish so my diet has been primarily carbohydrates for 30+ years.
Due to my job, I’ll be spending the next 8 or so months on a boat at sea, I’ll have no control over the food available to me and as we only get supplies once every 4 weeks, fresh vegetables and fruit is a limited commodity. Despite these challenges, I will try to follow as much of the Plan as I can, and take onboard (excuse the pun) all of the principles which have lead me to my current state of being and will consequently lead me on to the next much more positive chapter of my life.
